Iran President Ahmadinejad May Have Jewish Past

October 3, 2009

(ChattahBox)— Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a rabid Holocaust denier, who frequently calls for the annihilation of the State of Israel. During his recent speech before a United Nations meeting last month, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denounced Israel’s “genocide, barbarism and racism,” as members of delegations from Britain, the U.S. and others walked out of the room in protest.

Now, according to The Telegraph, Ahmadinejad’s bitter hatred of Israel may stem from a man who is desperately trying to hide his own Jewish past.

During the last bitterly contested presidential elections, Ahmadinejad was photographed holding up his identity card, and a closer inspection of the entries on the card seem to show his Jewish ancestry.

It’s long been known that Ahmadinejad’s family changed their name when they moved to Tehran in the 1950s, but it was not revealed what that name was. According to his identity card, his original family name was Sabourjian, which is a well known Jewish name in Iran.

The Country of Iran keeps a list of names reserved for Jewish families and Sabourjian appears on the list.

According to Ahmadinejad’s family, their family name was changed due to economic and religious reasons. The family converted to Islam in the 50s and changed their name to Ahmadinejad soon after the conversion.

Ahmadinejad’s opponents have long suspected his Jewish ancestry, but he has been successful in clamping down any speculation about his name change.

During this year’s presidential debate on television, he was forced to admit that his name had changed, but didn’t elaborate.

Additionally, Mehdi Khazali, an Internet blogger, who called for an investigation of Mr Ahmadinejad’s roots was arrested this summer.

Benjamin Netanyahu made an impassioned speech at the UN denouncing Ahmadinejad’s denial of the Holocaust, calling him a disgrace who denies the murder of six million Jews.

    I’m torn. On one hand, I want to adhere to principle, take the high road, and say that the fact that Immadinnerjacket was once Jewish is of no political consequence. It’s something for the psychologists to mull over, but otherwise a footnote in the life of this mad man. On the other hand, I’m tempted to play into the idea of a mass Jewish conspiracy and try to convince the Iranian hardliners that he’s actually a Jewish sleeper agent, and should be dealt with post haste.

    A-Jad is always good for a laugh. But unfortunately now he’ll be forced to exterminate himself.
